Fifty years after the ravages of Hannibal, the Roman Republic isn’t doing so well. Taxes have risen, the Senate is under pressure, and Carthage, the old enemy, is stockpiling weapons.
But Consul Cato is a practical man. He knows that if the Senate hears a clamour of voices against Carthage, order could be restored.
